    Let's see our Furry Friends dress for Halloween

    This will be my first Halloween with a small dog and plans to go to a Halloween party our vet is hosting.
    Soooo I am trying to decide what to dress up our "Riley" as. Then I thought, now is a great time to share and show off our furry babies we love so much, dressed in their halloween costumes.
    Here is my Riley, who may be a punk rocker since he has a natural mohawk thing going on!

    I don't have a clue how to put a picture in this spot. I found a very cheap costume for Socrates. I took kling bandage ( dollar store). Wrapped it around his middle, around a leg, around his head, and then took food coloring, and dabbed it in spots. He looked injured, and embarressed. Everyone felt sorry for him, and he one first prize at a party.

    Dodger being a cowboy.

    Here is my big baby being all tough and cowboy! She will only wear accessories for a moment or so, therefore she really would never win any contests....but we always get a laugh out of it. She usually does her mean bark growl routine while she is spinning around getting it all off, telling us exactly how she feels about the humilation of it all. LOL.

    I am hoping Riley will wear his costume once I get it made. I just ordered this pattern from Miss Daisy Designs.

    Riley is to cute and I love the blue healer idea. I don't have a picture to download, but one of the best costumes I've seen, and I'm not bragging, was the cow costume I made for my white share pei a few years ago. Her name was Maddie and she was a reincarnated old man, always had to be on a leash and loved to go anywhere. I made her floppy ears, a body suit and long tail and "milkers" on her tummy. I dyed a white work glove pink! She went around to the neighbors like she was going on her favorite outing. She didn't care what she had on, she just liked going. Wish I could show you, she was sor serious and funny!

    Riley is adorable with the natural mohawk and what a cute idea for Zoey.

    This is my 14 yo Pom Toby. We are still undecided on his costume but this is the front runner. We take our 3 dogs, dressed of course!, to the Halloween Parade for Animals which supports our local animal shelter. It costs $20 per dog so having the right costume is extremely important!!!! There are prizes for the all different categories. PS: my brood is yet to win a prize !!!

    Love the blue healer idea! One of mine is going as a pumpkin, one's a witch, one's a hot dog, and the other will wear his Santa outfit left over from Christmas. They just like to go, and one refuses to leave the house unless she's dressed. She knows where their wardrobe is and marches over to it, sits down and barks until I get her dressed. All I have to say is "wanna get beautiful" and she is all about it!

    OMG those were so cute. growing up at the beach we had a german shepard that we would put on the dads boxers backwards so there was a place for his tail to stick out and a hawaain shirt, hat and sunglasses so he was a beach bum.
    he thought he was one of the kids so he loved it. even for our birthday he worn a hat and was included. the kids always bought him a ham bone for his present. (he was a week older that me. )

    Riley and Zoey are both adorable! Can't wait to see them in their costumes I have 2 cats and I think they will be "spoiled kitties" for Halloween. That way I won't have to make costumes. Have you every tried to put a costume on a cat with claws? Not a pretty sight! lol

    (My kitties are wearing their costumes in my avatar.)
